I am a video journalist on the Washington, D.C., and democracy teams at The Associated Press.

As a multi-format journalist covering mainly political stories in Washington and beyond, I shoot and produce video and photographs, deliver live shots and contribute to text stories.

I earned an M.A. in Journalism from the University of Missouri in Columbia on a Fulbright scholarship and a B.A. in International Relations from Bilkent University in Turkey.

I am an FAA-certified drone pilot and a PADI-certified advanced scuba diver.
